Gone Away to Anglesea, PUNU Style

I see how they really see me. April, 2011:

I’m putting the marker in the sand, Ive had ENOUGH!
The 5 year long trip through the deathly depths of wonderland:
There is still the existing, stationary bubble on the beach and all the blond bikinis have transformed in time to fat lard, internally confused and unknowingly racist towards my good friends yeah those ones, and my friends lived here for years, a citizen and a real worker what this globalized world feeds off of the ones that actually intellectually run the place.
The future generation the sexy generation youthful and encouraging full of natural humor and real life stories just reaching the surface, on a wild side.

This is my future now in this outback: religion vs skin tone, sex vs money, the living vs the dead walking, and how to avoid a tornado when your hands are full of the last groceries. i know you don’t understand me because maybe you have not been there. try harder and maybe it will happen to you, be yourself and be the best you can be Oprah style the femme way, but don’t come running to me scraping the bottom of my creative barrel when you are still attempting to avoid the corporate “creative” rape. that’s the curse of being young still. but I’d rather be 40 and young than 26 and rotten already.

An ode to my Punu Bumesi project: This shoot is dedicated to my first models Mari Maekawa & Sahalini Singh for this project whom I share the seas with as sirens from San Fran to Japan and back down under.

My Men’s Aw 2011 Favs

So Its that time, whoever is a hard core fashion week obsess or such as I am, especially during the Autumn season! And on my 2011 psychedelic urban phase I chose my favs for menswear. And totally inspired to start men’s clothes here in Melbourne, after all, which such a sexy crowd of multicultural understated men seeking clothes for the creative individual (off the op shop path with a twist)  in Australia and the globalized world, I think we need a revolutionary kicker for all!!!!

Here are my favs:

#1: Walter Van Beirendonck

The most influential to me at the moment. See Punu Bumesi for future posts.

#2: Henrik Vibskov

# 3: Givenchy

Has always been one of my ultimate favorite designer ever since I was into this fashion thing that happens in Paris!

#4 John Galliano

The best of creative men’s clothes in my opinion. very season is a blast to check out, even if it is predictable. I just love the world he creates with clothes. And the dance that I was growing up makes his collections rather nostalgic to me.

I love men’s clothes.
